genome map


Also found in: Wikipedia.

genome map

a graphic representation of the locations of genes in a genome. The human genome map, completed in 1996, locates 5264 markers for genes and has led to the discovery of 223 genes linked to more than 200 diseases. The mouse genome map locates 7377 markers on 20 chromosomes.

ge·nome map

(jē'nōm map)
